I wrote about BVRGER’s “COOPER” earlier this year and he builds upon the single’s promise with an intricate EP. Titled BRAINFOOD, it’s an intoxicating blend of sonic influences that bring house, r&b, hip-hop, and soul all under the same colorful umbrella. My personal favorite cut is “KISS & TELL” which has a wonderfully bouncy beat and acrobatic vocals that are dynamic, constantly shape shifting and engaging. I appreciate how BVRGER can thrive atop electronic-tinged production as much as he can as the acoustic work on “NO SLEEP” which offers room for his sound to breathe with a super natural ebb and flow. Each track on the EP offers something new with every repeated listen which is the hallmark of an excellent release as layers continue to reveal themselves again and again.
I’m all about some brainfood. I keep myself constantly engaged with topics that force me to think on a deeper level. I’ve recently been engrossed in the theory that there was an impact upon the planet during the Younger Dryas period and that extinctions were sudden rather than slowly successional. It’s so exciting to not only ponder a theory like this one via podcasts and videos and write ups, but dig through all the empirical evidence that helps arrive at that conclusion. I know theories like this can be too out there for some people, but I love the constant questioning of our existence and expanding knowledge of the cosmos and beyond.
